I recently moved from San Diego CA to Alexandria VA to be with my fiancé who had to relocate for her job. I am a retired Deputy Sheriff that has a love for animals that has driven me since I was a child. In high school, instead of playing sports, I tried to prepare myself to be a veterinarian. I volunteered to work with local veterinarians in Tucson AZ and I also volunteered to work around horses at a stable. Even though I graduated with honors I didn't get a scholarship and it was too expensive to pay myself. I joined the Navy and served 5 years as a helicopter search and rescue swimmer. I later pursued a animal care job at Sea World of San Diego. I cared for dolphins, whales, walruses, and sea lions. I always had a desire to work with a German shepherd in K9 so I joined the San Diego County Sheriff department and purchased my German Shepherd to train for patrol. Zeus and I went through the basic and off leash dog handling classes and I did bite work training with fellow dog handlers.
I am looking forward to walking dogs and pet sitting in my neighborhood of Potomac Greens. I don't host in my home. I have two fun loving dogs, my adopted 9 year old Yorkshire terrier named Bella, and my fiancés one year old Maltese named Bijoux. Bella is very dominant and doesn't really want to share her space. Sorry.
The pictures I posted are from our cross country trip to Alexandria from San Diego.
Rest assured, if you leave your pet with me to walk or pet sit, you will have no worries. They will be treated as if they were my own. I will make sure the water bowl is full, and any food/ medications will be given as directed. I am a responsible pet owner that doesn't let my dogs relieve themselves on the neighbor's lawns.
